Eric Seidman from the Phillies blog Brotherly Glove joins us to discuss the already completed games, and those yet to come, in the National League Division Series with the Phils.
Our chat with Eric included many topics about both the Phillies and the Cardinals, including a review of games one and two, a preview of game three and the remainder of the series. We then went on to talk a bit about some specifics from both teams: the difference between Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels, the Cards’ bullpen, should Kyle Lohse have pitched to Ryan Howard, and the health of Matt Holliday.
Josh and I also had our own discussion touching on defining roles in the Cardinal bullpen, Jaime Garcia in a potentially must win (?) game three, Dave Duncan, and Ryan Theriot being successful (yeah, that’s right).
(Portions were recorded with Josh on an open-air mic and me on a wireless connection, so apologies for some static and skips. It sounds like auto-tune in the opening! One of these times we will both get in a sound booth and put together a finished product for you folks.)
Please give a listen, tell your friends, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and keep reading.
